In 1800 Smithfield Market was the largest cattle market in the world. But new concerns over sanitation, as well as changing views about the purpose of public space, meant that the market became an issue of contention, culminating in the Smithfield Removal Act of 1851. Metcalfe examines the struggle between the market's supporters and detractors and argues that this demonstrates a major shift in the way the urban landscape came to be used.

Product Description:

This study examines the struggle between Smithfield market's supporters and detractors and argues that this demonstrates a major shift in the way the urban landscape came to be used.

Review:

'a fascinating read for anyone wanting to learn more about an important, hitherto neglected aspect of the growth and development of the Victorian metropolis.' Urban History 'a well-written, comprehensive and interesting account ... it constitutes the definitive work on the nineteenth-century Smithfield livestock market.' EH.net 'Meat, Commerce and the City is a highly readable social history of debates over the removal of the Smithfield cattle market from the centre of London, presenting a lively and accessible account of concerns about the place of both livestock and dead meat in the heart of the burgeoning metropolis. This book will contribute not only to the field of urban history but also to a growing interest in food studies.' Nadja Durbach, University of Utah 'In this brilliantly-researched book, Metcalfe has finally written the definitive history of Smithfield. In her hands, the colourful, protracted battle to reform London's giant cattle market becomes a lens through which to view early Victorian debates about modernization, diet and civilization. Meat, Commerce, and the City is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of London, food, animals or urban design.' Christopher Otter, The Ohio State University 'a work that I imagine many historians of London have been waiting for... Metcalfe has performed a service in tracing, analysing, and listing a wide range of sources, many of them in the hard-to-find category.' Victorian Studies 'Metcalfe carries off a real tour de force in the collection of primary sources ... a valuable lesson for all researchers interested in this approach to food history.' Revista Historia Agraria (Translated from Spanish)
